Bike trip II

All right,I made it. All the way around Lake Washington. I was resting a lot through the last 5 miles however. I started from Rainier Beach at 7:30 and got to Kenmore at 10:45 for a sausage mc somthing or other. Home again in 7 hours. Lost 4 pounds, got it back already.
I was assigned this weight and I consider it my duty to keep it.
It is my lot in life.
The endorphins are nice (I guess that's what this feeling of calm is) I had sort of epiphany about a situation that has been bothering me for a while and made a moral decision about it and acted on it. So I'm probably in some kind of big trouble again as is the way with the moral decisions of the world. Especially when made under the influence of drugs. More especially when made under the influence of drugs manufactured by your own body (see this years Tour de France)
Perhaps if I keep up the exercise, these psychotropic chemicals will keep giving me the feeling that I am right about this.
The feeling of being right is always a dangerous one.
Sort of like feeling that the world loves you (speaking of dangerous chemicals) because you feel like loving the world.
Any way, the Seattle to Portland bike run is 4 trips around the lake. As it says In my bio, I am an old man, so forget that.
Now on to the hike around Mt. Rainier's wonderland trail. And finishing the canoe trip from Flaming geyser park to Alki point.
As my soul mate and the one and only true love of my life, Emily, puts it, I would not wait for death. I'll ride out to look for it, I'm sure it's out there somewhere Perhaps this heart that has spent most of it's life in a broken state will finally get smart ant give it up. Wouldn't it be nice if it happened on the slopes of Rainier and the ugly body never found but by wolves, crows and bacteria.
Just my luck, I'll probably stay alive to contemplate Gods exquisitly ironic gift of the knowledge of our own eventual deteriation and the pleasure of looking through the window of the great party of life without "A" list status.
Enough of this blather. See you later.
